September’s 2022 New York Fashion Week has finally wrapped up, and we are beyond excited by the interesting and colorful designs we’ll be seeing next spring and summer! There were plenty of floral-inspired prints, especially in Caroline Herrara’s collection. Clothes inspired by actual flowers were also on display on runways from Loewe and Dion Lee, where dresses shaped like vibrant anthurium blooms and monstera leaves blew us away with their bold, tropical vibe. For something a little more glamorous, look to Schiaparelli’s collection, where luxe accents fit well with heavier, bolder flowers like rosy red ginger. A hint for future bridesmaids in rich velvet dresses, a bolder, less delicate flower will look fantastic.
The vibrant and fun colors of NYFW are sure to be seen everywhere in spring and summer 2023 fashion. The top hues that dominated the runways were bright fuschia, tangerine orange, fluorescent green, vibrant yellow, and cobalt blue. Strong color combinations and bold hues were on display at many fashion designers’ shows, along with more neutral tones, such as Vanilla Cream and Gray Lilac, which also made a strong impression. Paired together, the neutral tones and bold hues projected individuality, strength, creativity, and fun.
